I have an orange-wing amazon parrot, love him so much and he is a hoot. He is the light of my life and the greatest gift a friend could ever give me. I have had him for 7 years now. he was 5 years old when given to me. he needed a good home and I always wanted an amazon for so long as well. He is 12 years old now and in great health as well and so, so spoiled.

Tonto came into my life in 1983 & pretty much runs the house. He will sometimes sleep with his girlfriend Sadie a nine/almost 10year old Rottweiler/Black Lab at the foot of my bed (where he can also view himself in the mirrored closet doors). He helps in the kitchen too, he cleans chicken bones (loves the marrow) on the kitchen counter & will throw scraps down to his girlfriend. For christmas last year he got a full floor to ceiling tree in the corner of our living room so he can hang out with us when watchin TV (likes football very much) & will attack my brother if he tries to pet Sadie...

I've had a Mexican Red Head (or Green Cheek) Amazon for 3 months now. Paco was 15 weeks old when I brought him home. He's already developed quite a vocabulary!! I have 8 other birds and he's adapted well to them and they to him. He definitely prefers females to males, but he will allow my husband to pick him up. He loves to "hang out" with me, no matter what I'm doing. I like to make bird toys for my birds and I have a large plastic bin that I keep the supplies stored in. When I bring the bin up from the basement, Paco knows what I'm going to be doing for the next few hours and wants to "help" too. He sits on the edge of the bin and pokes through all the wood pieces, rawhide strips and bells, as if he's the Quality Control Manager! He loves to take showers! When he's in the shower, he flaps his wings like mad and vocalizes at the top of his lungs. I'm looking forward to many happy years with this dear bird.

I would recommend an orange-winged amazon parrot to anyone, they are fun and can be your best friends for life. I got my parrot from my uncle when he was just a weaned baby, from the wild, in Trinidad, and altough i'm here in the U.S, my grandmother takes care of him to this very day. his name is Victor and he's about 18-20 years old. he's good at repeating his name and singing beautiful melodies when you drum or sing for him. He has a special bond with me, but especially my grandmother who he sees as his mother. he follows her everywhere, and comes out of his cage and perches on the stool in the kitchen when she's cooking. He's trained and would never fly away. Want a friend for life, get a parrot.

Hello,
As I write this, Wanda, my Blue Front is sitting on my shoulder anxiously awaiting her breakfast. See, Wanda had always eaten what we eat...if Im eating a bowl of fruit, she's right there awaiting her snack. Anyways, I have had Wanda for close to 30 years, she's my companion, my little feathered daughter.
My entire family always gets a kick out of her, she loves sitting on my shoulder while Im on the computer...she tells us "Nite-Nite" when she wants to go to bed.
The only thing that makes me sad is she is a one person bird and I cant share her loving, silly ways with anyone else.
Anyway for all you new owners, treat your Blue Front well, they will love you unconditionally.

I am now the very proud owner of a white-fronted amazon. He is 3 months old. I feel very lucky to have him at this stage. He was hand fed and has a very sweet temperment. I only wish he would like to come out of his cage more. We leave the door open a lot as a sort of an invitation to join us. But most times we carry him out. No name yet. But I'm leaning towards "Groucho"(because he looks like he is wearing a little green suit and the way he leans forward when he walks holding his peanut, it almost looks like a cigar).
Love being able to talk about him somewhere else. My friends are probably tired of me telling them "You have to see THE BABY!".

i just got lucky LOL (no pun intended) my apparent 8 year old OW amazon parrot from a lady who was too busy for it anymore. its name is lucky, im not sure if its a boy or girl tho. doesnt talk for the old owner so im hoping it will for me someday. the bird was strongly bonded with her daughter and would attack her daughters b/f. ive had lucky out of the cage crawling around on me just fine but he really took to my g/f and his eyes light up when she speaks to him. he loves her very much. ive been sure to hug her around him so that he will get used to me and her together and not think of me the same way he thought of the old owners daughter b/f. cant wait to spend many years with lucky :)

My mealy, Benny, is my baby. He refers to me as "sweetie" - he's quite the ladies' man. He is extremely active and can be VERY loud! He has an uncanny knack for ruining the good parts of movies with his chicken impression. I would advise anyone looking to get an amazon that they are very rambunctious and strong-willed, and you always have to be one step ahead of them!
